As Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season, it brings with it a wave of excitement for getaways, reunions, and adventures. Whether plans include lounging on sandy beaches, hiking through mountain trails, or simply enjoying quality time with friends and family, showing appreciation to your hosts is a gracious gesture that leaves a lasting impression. At Dragon Hemp, the focus is on giving thoughtful, meaningful gifts that promote wellness and balance, and that last well beyond your visit. 

Here are some exceptional, all-natural host gifts that embody the essence of summer and the spirit of gratitude, and will last well after you're gone:

1. Liniments: Elevate Their Skincare Ritual

Summer hosts often find themselves needing a moment of relaxation and self-care amidst the hustle and bustle. Liniments offer a luxurious upgrade to an everyday routine CBD and essential oil-infused body care, providing anti-inflammatory and aromatherapeutic benefits. Unlike typical moisturizers, these liniments transform each application into a ritual of a daily escape that soothes both body and mind.

The four custom scents are specifically designed to transport the user on an escape to their favorite destination: a calming walk on the beach with Ocean, a rebalancing walk through the Desert, a purifying escape to the Mountain, or a stimulating hike through the Forest. Picture visiting a friend’s beach house for the weekend. After a long day of surfing, frolicking in the waves, or simply basking in the sun, everyone feels the effects of an active day under the hot sun. Dragon Hemp’s Liniments’ anti-inflammatory properties are ideal for after-sun care, with a luxurious and immersive experience. Giving this body care upgrade not only shows your appreciation but also provides them with soothing replenishment. It’s a thoughtful touch that will surely be appreciated and remembered.

Available in three formulas—everyday body lotion, featherlight body oil, and intensive hydrating creme, or as a complete set—these liniments cater to every need, turning skincare into a moment of daily rejuvenation. Each formula offers unique benefits:

  • Body Lotion: Perfect for daily hydration, this lightweight lotion absorbs quickly, leaving the skin feeling soft and refreshed. It’s ideal for hosts who enjoy a quick, effective skincare routine for any ocassion.

  • Body Oil: For warm summer days, this body oil provides deep hydration in a weightless formula without leaving a greasy residue. It’s also perfect for an after-shower treat or a relaxing massage.

  • Hydrating Creme: This rich creme is designed for intense moisture and repair, making it ideal for dry or damaged skin, and areas with tougher skin like hands or feet. It’s a thoughtful gift for hosts who need a little extra TLC for their skin.

2. Leisure Gummies: Sweet, Shareable Joy

Leisure Gummies are delightful treats that enhance mood, promote relaxation and relieve stress, perfect for social gatherings or simply winding down after a busy day. These gummies combine the euphoric properties of hemp-derived THC with the calming properties of other complementary cannabinoids, making them a delicious and effective way to let loose. During a trip to your friend’s beach house or a family reunion at a lakeside cabin, evenings are filled with laughter and stories around the fire pit. Leisure Gummies are the ideal gift to enhance these settings, particularly as an alternative to alcohol.

Hemp-derived THC offers a unique alternative to alcohol in social settings, providing relaxation and euphoria without significant cognitive or motor impairment. This allows individuals to maintain clarity and control while enjoying its calming effects, making it ideal for those practicing casual sobriety. Incorporating hemp-derived THC into social routines can also reduce overall alcohol consumption, because mornings after are just as sacred as unforgettable nights. Enjoying an edible instead of a cocktail, or pairing a Leisure Gummy with a drink, enhances relaxation with less alcohol. This approach mitigates excessive drinking risks and cuts down on calories and other adverse effects, making it an attractive option for maintaining a vibrant social life without compromising health.

3. Sleep Gummies: Ensuring a Restful Night

Sleep Gummies are a wonderful gift for hosts who might need a little help unwinding and achieving a peaceful night’s rest after a day of hosting duties. After a lively evening of hosting a barbecue party in their backyard, your friends are exhausted yet buzzing with energy. Handing them a bag of Sleep Gummies as a thank-you gift not only shows your appreciation but also helps them find tranquility and rest. They’ll be grateful for your consideration and the restful sleep that follows.

Sleep is crucial for overall health and well-being, and these gummies make it easier for your hosts to get the quality rest they need. The combination of CBD and CBN works synergistically to support the body’s natural sleep cycle, helping to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and improving sleep quality throughout the night. What’s more? In a delicious blackberry-lavender flavor, they are the perfect treat to enjoy before bed that you won’t regret in the morning!

4. Energy Gummies: A Boost for the Busy Host

Perfect for hosts who need to stay energized and alert throughout the day, Energy Gummies provide a natural energy boost, without the risk of crashing. Infused with THCV (not THC) and CBC, these gummies are a great way to support their vitality and stamina to make the most out of every day. For a weekend bike ride or a day on the boat, Energy Gummies are a practical and considerate gesture for hosts who need to stay sharp and focused throughout their busy days.
